Henri Yandell reopened NET-98:

> SMTP won't work under non-ASCII platforms
> -----------------------------------------
>          Key: NET-98
>          URL:
>      Project: Commons Net
>         Type: Bug

>  Environment: Operating System: other
> Platform: Other
>     Reporter: fasselin
>     Priority: Blocker

> The SMTP code doesn't work on EBCDIC platforms (like IBM os/390) because it 
> sends the commands in the default platform encoding instead of forcing it to be 
> I've tested it with an application running on OS/390 trying to do SMTP with a 
> Domino server also running on OS/390 and it doesn't work because the server 
> expects ASCII encoding even if it is running on an EBCDIC platform.
> It is specified in the SMTP protocol that the commands/responses must be 
> encoded in ASCII.
> I've made it work locally by changing the calls to open the input/output 
> streams in the method by using the 
> respective constructors accepting an encoding as the second parameter and by 
> specifying this encoding to be "Cp850".  The code changes still works on a 
> Win2K platform.
> I suspect there might be other platforms and/or other protocols that are 
> affected.
